Cardamom plant grown in the south-east of Colombia

Cardamom has a strong, unique taste, with an intensely aromatic, resinous fragrance. Green cardamom is one of the most expensive spices by weight, but little is needed to impart the flavor.

It is a common ingredient in Indian cooking and is often used in baking in Nordic countries, such as in the Finnish sweet bread pulla or in the Scandinavian bread Julekake. In the Middle East, green cardamom powder is used as a spice for sweet dishes, as well as traditional flavouring in coffee and tea. Cardamom pods are ground together with coffee beans to produce a powdered mixture of the two, which is boiled with water to make coffee. Cardamom is used to some extent in savoury dishes. In some Middle Eastern countries, coffee and cardamom are often ground in a wooden mortar, a mihbaj, and cooked together in a skillet, a mehmas, over wood or gas, to produce mixtures as much as 40% cardamom.

Inside Our Cardamom Farming Project

It took several years of hard work but finally it has paid off and Colombian farmers are thrill. Our initiative gave way to the commitment by SWISSAID to sponsor a project that in its first stage of three years will benefit 2300 people of which 360 are direct beneficiaries of the Cardamom Project.
